Olive Class 2018 - 2019

Mrs Edwards

Welcome to Olive class!  Our class is made up of 16 fabulous Year 1 children. Our teacher is Mrs Edwards and we are very lucky to have Mrs McKie, Mrs Horton and Mrs Stanley working with us for some of our lessons. We are always busy bees in Olive class and we love learning about new topics!

This term our topic is 'The Great Fire of London'. We are looking forward to learning about this topic as we get to learn all about an important part of history in our capital city. In our History lessons, we will become historians and researchers of the great fire. We will be learning about the 5Ws as a part of this topic, thinking about who, what, where, when and why. We will also be discovering how the fire began and the aftermath of the incident. We will be thinking about significant people in history such as Samuel Pepys and creating fact files to show the importance of significant people during the time of the great fire. We will also be looking at artist interpretation of the fire to show how the fire spread through London. Our artist focus for this term is Paul Klee. We will be creating our own versions of some of his famous works of art, such as 'Castle and Sun'.
